    Settings How can we turn raw data into measurable improvements in outcomes?
  2. • Improved outcomes ◦ Reduce preventable deaths ◦ Manage workforce

    • Have impact at scale ◦ Automation ◦ Standards for best practices ◦ Reduce time to implementation ◦ Reduce time to correction • Applies to problems we have ◦ Find fake and exceptional data ◦ Estimate missing data ◦ Triage data by risk ◦ Predict demand and trends Why Use Machine Learning?
  3. Opportunities • Significant much room for improvement • Willingness to

    experiment Challenges • Current digital data not collected with ML in mind • Data sovereignty often requires on-premises deployments Working with governments and NGOs
